The High Spirits: Stories of Men and Women by David Huddle

Eleven short stories that unfold the illusions and truths of love, by a writer of enormous talent and style.The High Spirits explores a special territory-- something of a frontier-- that is distinct from the short story, the novella and the novel. Beyond linked stories, it lacks a name. Nevertheless, it is a territory of subtle beauty and many possibilities. And it is a place where Mr. Huddle clearly finds himself at home.? The New York Times Book ReviewAn altogether excellent cycle of stories. . . No merchant of existential dread or suburban anxiety, Huddles work is a refreshing antidote to much of what passes for contemporary fiction.? NewsdayHuddle is a master of a prose so clean you can see it shine. It is the vehicle to any insight the reader may come to, and yet it hides from its own insights with the same guileless honesty that makes the characters reveal themselves. It packs a powerful-- and moral-- punch.? Judith Kitchen, Prairie Schooner
